The Upper Valley Music Center (UVMC) in Lebanon, NH, announced the hiring of Hanna Smith as executive director on September 24, 2012.  Ms. Smith will lead development, marketing, and community engagement initiatives to support UVMC’s mission as well as oversee the music school's day-to-day operations.

“This is great news for us,” says president and co-founder Louis Cornell. “Hanna joins us as we celebrate a newly renovated building and welcome strong new staff and faculty appointments. We’re anticipating an exciting time ahead for music education in the Upper Valley.”

Smith received a B.S. in business from the University of Richmond, a graduate degree in early European art from Christie’s Education in London, and a masters of arts management and public policy from Carnegie Mellon University.  She honed her development and community engagement skills as the assistant director of development at the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and served on the board of Project Create, a non-profit that enriches the lives of children, youth and families experiencing homelessness and poverty through arts education.
